If you recall, Fool’s Gold Day Off (aka the biggest party of the summer, aka your best chance of becoming BFFs with Danny Brown) returns to 50 Kent (Kent Ave. and North 12th St.) on September 1 before it spins off into a multi-city mega-tour hitting Toronto, L.A., Atlanta and Miami this fall.
Keeping with Fool’s Gold tradition, the hometown label has culled together a lineup of hip-hop and dance-music trailblazers for this year’s bash, including FG heavyweight Danny Brown, reigning NY street rap emperor French Montana, MPC maestro AraabMuzik, hard-knock legends The LOX, FG future bass ambassadors Brenmar, Hoodboi and Shash’U, the coolest collection of new hip-hop heroes from World’s Fair to Yung Gleesh, FG cofounder Nick Catchdubs and many, many more (including some special surprises from the FG captains themselves…)
In other words, you’ll want to be there. A limited number of early-bird tickets are on sale now for a slim $15. Once those are snatched up (act fast!), tickets are $20 advance and $30 day of. Buy them here, and check fgdayoff.com for full info, lineup updates, past recap videos and more.
